Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick in Trap Queen

It’s been forever since I’ve written a product review and I’m so excited to finally do this one! The whole entire world knows that I am completely and utterly obsessed with red liquid lipstick. (And I have written many posts on it, see here, here and even here.) I just love it! So earlier this […]

It feels like it’s been ages since I’ve written a product review. I’ve spent a while writing a few lifestyle posts; spending quality time with my girls and focussing on my day job. I absolutely promise that I’ve been buying and experimenting, I haven’t given up being a product junkie and it’s fitting that my […]

Lipstick Diaries – A Week of Lipsticks

First and foremost, I must thank Stephanie at Nude Lip Diaries for inspiring this post! I love her blog and read it regularly. The first post that I ever read on her blog was this, where she shared a week of lipsticks and I absolutely love the idea! I decided to try it myself when I […]

Nyx Butter Lipstick and Intense Butter Gloss

I’ve clearly been hiding under the rock of high-end products for years and haven’t tried any NYX products until very recently. I liked what I tried so  put a request out to Instagram and Facebook to if anyone had any recommendations for amazing NYX products.  These were overwhelming yeses so I thought I had to […]

Collection Velvet Kiss Moisturising Lip Cream

I’m old enough to remember when Collection used to be Collection 2000 and I used to buy quite a few of their products using my Saturday job wages. Twenty years later and not much has changed… my actual wages mostly get spent on makeup after childcare, bills and my car. I’ve been feeling nostalgic lately […]

Primark Velvet Matte Lipstick Crayon in Midnight

It’s no secret that I’m partial to a bold lip or that I’m a fan of Primark make up. And I really do like these Velvet Matte Lipstick Crayons, so much so that I wish they did more colours. The range is pretty limited. I felt like a change today, so thought I would try […]

Mac Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick Review

I’m quite into liquid lipsticks at the moment. The first one I tried was the Chanel Rouge Allure Ink in Expérimenté which I absolutely love as it’s such a unique colour. (Check my review out here.) As I loved the consistency and the longevity, I’ve been on the hunt for liquid lipsticks from different brands […]

How to Prepare Your Lips for a Bold Lipstick

I used to be too scared to wear a bright lipstick, but that is no longer the case. I will admit though, bright lipsticks require a certain amount of confidence to wear but also a degree of preparation, as they draw attention to your face. So for me personally, if I have a huge blemish […]

Clinique Crayola Chubby Lip Crayon Box

I had a few hours of child-free time last weekend. I was so excited. It was the first time in weeks. I can’t even class work as child-free time; I work in a school. But, at least at work I don’t have to share my lunch or be watched when I go to the toilet… […]

Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Expérimenté

So, when I say I hunted for this, I mean hunted high and low even to the point of sending my poor dad into House of Frasers across the country (he’s a train conductor, I didn’t make him drive for miles) in order to find this shade. I really wanted Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Experimente […]
